Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons at Montauk Brewing Company

by Debra Rose

Of the many ways to give back to the community, having a pint of beer with your dog on the patio is a perfect fit for Montauk.

The Montauk Brewing Company continues to partner with ARF, the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons through their Brew Barn Series charity release program, brewing 100 cases to honor ARF’s work and the animals it supports. Co-founder Vaughan Cutillo was eager to team up with ARF in support of their work all over the East End by helping create the Big Dog Double IPA, freshly canned on 20 October. The beer will be on tap at the Brewery and sold in New York City and throughout Long Island.

ARF and the Montauk Brewery celebrated the limited-edition release at the Brewery the day they were canning, hosting guests in the taproom and on the patio with the mobile adoption van out front. Dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens were available for adoption and for fostering, as they continue to be at the shelter at ARF headquarters in East Hampton.

Founded in 2012 by three Montauk locals, Vaughan Cutillo, Joe Sullivan and Eric Moss, the Brewery is now within the top 100 craft breweries in America, and the second-largest brewery on Long Island after Blue Point. Inspired by Colorado brewing and beer culture, Montauk Brewing Company continues to appeal to their strong hometown roots while gathering momentum and a loyal following on a national scale.

Founded in 1974, ARF is the leading animal welfare organization on the East End of Long Island. Each year ARF takes in over 1,500 cats and dogs and provide food, exercise, a warm place to sleep and excellent veterinary care in their state-of-art Adoption Center. Since inception ARF has found homes for over 25,000 cats and dogs. ARF is dedicated to finding loving homes for their precious pets to improve their lives and enrich the lives of those who adopt them. Cheers!    ◾
